Terminator 5: Alan Taylor in, release date slightly changed

A one week delay for Terminator 5, and it now seems confirmed that Thor: The Dark World helmer Alan Taylor will direct...

It looks as if the appointment of Alan Taylor to direct the fifth Terminator movie is now a done deal. Taylor, currently putting the finishing touches to Thor: The Dark World, is set to make whatever Terminator 5 ends up being called. It's also set to be the first in a new trilogy of Terminator movies. Although, to be fair, they said that about Terminator: Salvation too.

Paramount Pictures has slightly put back the release date of the movie anyway. It was set for June 26th 2015, but it's now heading to cinemas - in the US at least - on July 1st 2015. That puts it head to head with Independence Day 2 as things stand at the moment (in a battle of big franchise resurrections), as well as a new film from Illumination Entertainment (the Despicable Me people).
